All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), including three-wheelers, four-wheelers and dirt bikes, are used every day for farming, recreation, and transportation in areas difficult to access by automobiles. As inherently dangerous vehicles, ATV accidents happen often and can lead to serious injuries. Due to their popularity amongst younger drivers, teenagers and children are frequently the ones injured in ATV accidents. Roll over accidents are particularly common and are often caused by flaws in the design and defective manufacturing. ATVs are relatively new to the market and thus have Many ATVs, especially three-wheelers, have been recalled in recent years. Just because a particular model of ATV has not been recalled does not mean that it is safe. The lack of enclosed roof or doors on an ATV exposes the driver in the event of an accident and may lead to being thrown from the vehicle or trapped.
If you have been injured in an ATV accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you need an experienced lawyer immediately. Call (215) 735-4800 to learn more about your case.
